Eddie Prevost
Drummer and percussionist Eddie Prvost was a founding member of the pioneering free-improvising group AMM, back in 1965, and has remained a member ever since. In the intervening years, AMM saw frequent personnel changes, from the early lineup of Prvost--saxophonist Lou Gare, guitarist Keith Rowe, pianist Cornelius Cardew, and cellist Lawrence Sheaff--through to the current duo of Prvost and pianist John Tilbury. Rowe left AMM in 2004 after a prolonged period of the group being a trio.

Rowe gave his reasons for leaving in a 2009 All About Jazz interview. Prvost was sent a transcript of that interview; he returned it unread and has shown no interest in discussing the circumstances of Rowe's departure.

AAJ's Free Improvisation correspondent in London, John Eyles, spoke at length with Prvost about the enduring legacy of AMM, and the work that's yet to be done.
